It is pretty much on our doorstop and we were just saying last week that we should go. It is such a wonderful place to visit, we love the national trust. Love photos. Wishing you a very lovely weekend Lynn xoxo

Fabulous isn't it?
The Apprentice House is so sad... Those little straw filled box beds that slept 3 or 4 young children who worked 12 hours a day in the Mill and were then expected to get some sort of education in the classroom after work... No wonder they tried to run away.
I don't think I would ever get tired of visiting Quarry Bank, there is so much to see.

Wonderful photos! It looks like a fascinating place.

Your weblog music startled me, lol. My family is sleeping and although I have my volume turned low I heard it and thought it was someone waking, disturbed by the dog - so I hissed at the dog to behave, only to realise she was sleeping in her bed too, lol!

It reminds us that life was not always as easy as it is today.

Beautiful imagery Lynn, captures the period and the mood perfectly. I found The Mill a very hard watch, and not so very long ago..... Will try and visit. Jaynex

Yes I have been too, fascinating insight to the past, I sat writing the alphabet on a slate and felt the children who had passed very poignant

Such a beautiful place Lynn. It's the simplicity the bareness of it all that strikes me.

Happy week!

Fabulous pictures Lynn. I have been there many years ago, but the thing that stayed with me was the noise of the machinery. Hope you are enjoying the last days of summer. Much love Linda x

Gail said...

fabulous post Lynn... I love all things vintage but I mean that's because I have modern day comforts ... I can't imagine how hard life was for people back in the old days... they must have been so cold and probably hungry too a lot of the time ... so I will count my blessings and wish you a lovely weekend...Gail x

MODERN COUNTRY said...

You are so right Lynn, the images speaks volume! Lovely place !!! I am sooo fond of old farmhouses, outbuildings, small holdings, mills etc..The rough linen clothes are beautiful too. I can feel the texture just by looking at them.

It was such a happy moment reading your message the other day, thank you for taking time to stop by. So nice to see you again tonight :)) I hope you had a great week. Is has become a bit more chilly the last few days here in Norway I have to admit. Nothing else to do but embrace the new season.

Enjoy your weekend ~ warm hug

My Mum had the very same corrugated wash-tub, I remember her doing washing and wringing out in the rear yard when I was small.

Visited Quarry Bank Mill a good few years ago now. Not only is it full of scrumptious 'scrumyness' the surrounding countryside is just wonderful!

Hugs to you Lynn,
